Fast-Track MBA

About the Fast-Track MBA

Our full-time Fast-Track MBA program is ideal for recent graduates who want to complete a Master's degree with one additional year of study following graduation from Loyola. Our fast-track students will enroll in 14 credit hours each fall and spring and complete their studies in the summer term with a final 12- credit hour requirement, attaining both BBA and MBA degrees. 

Our fast-track students still participate and collaborate with experienced executives in the classroom and gain practical knowledge through hands-on/experiential learning in the classroom. In addition, our fast-track students still have the opportunity to gain additional experience with optional graduate assistantship positions with our faculty and College of Business centers, including the Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development
